The Fresno State Quarter Horse Unit provides a unique opportunity for students and the general public to expand their equine knowledge. The Quarter Horse Unit is the setting for a number of Animal Science classes and internships, covering such areas as Horse Production, Advanced Horse Management, Stable Management, Equine Nutrition, and Colt Training.

The Quarter Horse Unit also operates as a functional breeding and training enterprise. Please see the "Broodmares" and "Quarter Horses For Sale" pages for more information on our bloodlines and horses available for purchase.
